's not on the top of anyone's mind. even though it was the subject of the final foreign policy debate, which was this week though it feels like it was months ago. at the end it was clear both had a strategy goinging in and it had very little to do with talking about the u.s. foreign policy. >> right. there was the expected clash of world views. romney has been bush -- pushing the idea of american exceptionalism, the very muscular view of foreign policy, pushing, and right down the line , but that romney didn't show up for the debate. he pulled himself very close to president obama's positions on pulling the troops out of afghanistan in 2014, on not introducing military forces into the crisis in syria, on crippling sanctions in iran and it was really stunning. gwen: did the specifics matter or was this about both of them trying to look like the commander fdemeef >> it was a good strategy on romney's part, iroda tulyaganovaly. the public suffered from not having two candidates with two very different inextincts -- instincts on foreign policy, but this is where he has stumbled. whenever he has

didn't come up once. in the foreign policy debate teacher's unions and the national debt got more at attention that climate change did. and this week they have a result of climate change blowing right up their shorts on the east coast. so future historians assuming they are any, are going to look at this time in history and think we're all out of our minds. >> charlie the hurricane is coming for that reason when we all know that it is because governor romney capitlated at a farm in virginia. [ laughter ] >> jennifer: stay right there. we'll tell you what hurricane sandy could mean for the election. plus believe it or not, there was a time when people watching tv would shout, hey, everyone come quick, it's a political ad. polling place. make sure that voting is your highest priority on election day. besides, you can always dvr my show. you really cant' dvr the future of the country. to help you make informed decisions, watch current tv's politically direct lineup. only on current tv. so vote and vote smart.

and also on foreign policy, how that is playing out. guest: let's -- there is no doubt the president had a pretty substantially on foreign policy in the polls that have been done. that lead has narrowed in the polls a look at just last week on the foreign policy question. i think that the benghazi issue has played a significant role in that decline. i think on benghazi, it is hard to say how that will play out politically. i do think the administration has a lot to answer for, objectively, for how it handled and what the president and vice- president or did not know any time and how they responded. we do not a time to get into the details of that. typically that would not be decisive. i do not think -- is truly on political terms, not to go into the more question the caller raised, and political terms is not likely to be decisive. it is not something helpful to the president'. it will likely not decide the election, but is still in the polls largely about the economy. host: jonathan martin -- a few days ago in politico.com i.p. writes that republicans are genuinely intrigued and the pros
people david ignatius at "the washington post." foreign policy a magazine shows up in benghazi to find documents in the personal documents of ambassador stevens. the fbi had been there but left the evidence in the rubble. >> it is unthinkable. it is a draft cable we don't know if it was ever sent but it does say we have asked the libyans again and again for more security with a patrol in the front in the back of roving patrol, bomb sniffing drugs, ambassadors coming and we have nothing we requested. that is found on the ground october 26? why are to the media up an arms asking again and again at every opportunity? get a straight story. nobody died with watergate or monica lipinski. the president owes the american people and explanation and they should not hide behind a "robust investigation." lou: the fbi left the documents on the ground amid the rubble. >> despite the fact fable told us the mission on the ground there were 10 training camps and benghazi the administrations and acted as a bit was normal we need to change policy. >> and values that recognize truth and honor? >> they nee
looking for food and the administration is mired in a foreign policy scandal over this terror aeu kwrabg in libya, and the race is dead even according to the "real clear politics" average, and a lot of polls show the race is dead even. this is not the position the president wanted to be in going into this november 6th election. >> nor did he think it would be. this is the worst position since any incumbent since george w. bush and maybe jimmy carter. it's the testament to his ten as a tiana lot of the money he raised and spent that it resulted in a tie. megyn: it never actually ends in a tie. we will get a result and chris stirewalt will know it before any of us knows it. he will be on the fox news decision desk tuesday night and i'll be saying, what do you know, and he'll be saying, i can't talk now. >> there is always time for you, meg. >> shall we tell them what happened back in 2010. brett and i were about to go on the air and we weren't able to call like the biggest -- anyway it wound up going into the prompter, that's how we learned as we read it it came out. >> we like to keep you
documents recovered from the benghazi compound by the foreign policy magazine show that in the early morning hours of september 11, the consulate staff believed they were under surveillance. this person was photographing the inside of the u.s. special mission. and furthermore, this person was part of the police unit sent to protect the mission. this is consistent with online post from sean smith, avid gamer before it was overrun with terrorists. smith was killed. "assuming we don't die tonight we saw one of the police guarding the come pound taking pictures." the classified cable sent to hillary clinton noted by headquarters that the situation on the ground was so dire in the long-term the consulate would take the extreme step of moving in with the cia at the annex which also came under attack on 9/11. >> the conditions on the ground were such that literally the back were up against the wall. they had no options left. >> reservations about the libyan security, escalates violence, rise of demolition central to the classified table sent in mid-august, forshadows the commando style attack. >> i
foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any phase of these actions. nor were we informed of them in advance. >> president eisenhower sounding kind of mad, right? the u.s. had not been informed about the attack ahead of time. because ike had made clear to our allies, to england specifically, that he didn't want another big multi-country conflict in the world. he'd worked with the u.n. to keep that attack from happening. he had made his intentions clear and then england and france just went behind his back and did it anyway and they did it a week before he was facing re-election. >> president dwight d. eisenhower is re-elected to the highest office in the land as world peace faces the greatest crisis since the second w
on the consulate in libya is exhibit a of a failed foreign policy of leading from behind. you could see this coming for months. the people on august 145 had a meeting and said we could not withstand a coordinated attack. >> there is that and all of this sort of alarms or red lights whether it is the attack in june or whatever in terms of yurt. then stage two as to what has happened since then. it was that no one bothered to see this too niece yan guy. there is even more than that. is that the fbi did visit benghazi after the attack sometime and left. but then fast forward to last week, october 26, be foreign policy journalists go in there after people have been walking all over the place and looking at that time and they he recovered documents is that are critical to this investigation. like the fbi didn't even bother. like nobody be even cared that four americans are dead. it is a snap by investigation. four people died. you you wouldn't even see that kind of investigation in a local homicide case. >> i hope the people of the united states who really do care about our national security will unders
to be pivoting so far that he's presenting himself as obama 2008. that's what we heard in the foreign policy debate. and what was striking for me today is how often he referred to positively to the obama of 2008, and how he tried to sort of seize the mantle that obama claimed in 2008. he used the word "change" so many times. that wasn't an accident. he talked talked about how obama promised to be bipartisan. he wasn't. romney would do that. what this really shows me is that romney is trying so hard to be a sheep's in wool's clothing saying don't believe it. i'm going to be the moderate pragmatic guy. >> eliot: when you look at what he says it is the same 'ol stuff. and this is the same litany of policies that led us over the precipice in 2008. is that a fair and accurate critique? >> sure, romney is surely the greater evil here on every count, the foreign policy. he'll bring the neo-conservatives back. in policies, he's not even interested in the mild dodd-frank. the reason why he's able to get away with it, it seems to me that he he's been polling and not only did he denounce george w. bush
." >> this is on foreign policy. the american ambassador to libya was recently killed. syria has defended -- descended into civil war. united states sends hundreds of billions of dollars in federal aid to countries around the world democracies and dictators. what should be the basic guiding principles of american foreign policies? >> fundamentally, i would have to say that freedom is something we need to encourage across the world. that me talk about christopher's stevens and what happened. his death along with three others is a tragedy, and that has been in a lot of people's thoughts and prayers. we need to get to the bottom of that, and i'm not here to speculate on who did what, but we need to find out and the american people need to know. i hope it will be transparent and can be clear so, two things will come out of it. people need to be held accountable, but also we can learn from that, so in the future if we have diplomats abroad we can ensure we are protecting them. as it relates to other countries, and there is turmoil in the middle east, from my perspective, that is one thing that we have don
that is not a serious discussion -- foreign policy, is foreign policy an issue at all in this election? >> i don't think it has been. i think president obama wants foreign policy to be a slogan. i got bin laden, let's move on. and really does not want to drill into the various areas around the world. and governor romney clearly from the other night does not want foreign policy to be much of an issue. he had plenty of opportunity to go after obama and chose not to do so. he chose to rise above begala -- above at all and can indicate that he can do this, that he has the knowledge and the demeanor to be able to be commander-in- chief. i think governor romney want this to be about the economy. every chance he got in the debate he brought it back to the economy. he brought it back to president obama's record. president obama is looking at the mess around the world and does not want to talk about that. he wants to talk about getting bin laden. as a result, a foreign-policy has taken a back seat. can the president have an impact on the fiscal situation? yes, but he is the sole player, by and large, on national
and what we can do for our foreign policy and. we are way ahead of everyone, including china. we have the best universities. we have entrepreneurialism spirits. we have a political system. i will take us over china and others. we're all gonna be thinking about the polarization next tuesday. we have the trifecta of stimulating the sluggish growth, getting on top of our debt problems, and investing in our future of the same time. i think we can do it. if we can, there is no reason to talk about american decline. >> i want the students, friends, faculty, please start thinking about questions. linocut the microphone. i do not know how many we will take because of time constraints. i want to ask our guests one other question about the future. in many ways, every administration is tested not by the things that they plan to do, but to the things that happened that they did not expect. the surprises. i guess the question for all of you looking to the future is what do you think will be the surprise for the next administration in asia? we will start with chris and work our way back. >> the qui
night, governor romney agreed with the president. but this is a different set of foreign policy views that he had earlier in the campaign. >> and george, that had been an argument that the obama people had kind of shied away from earlier in the campaign. >> well, that's right. right now, that charge is really an accusation that romney can live with. which is don't believe him, as andrew said, because you might like him. i think people say, look, our last impression of him, this is your closing argument, that this is someone that we can live with. i think the obama attack is buttressing the attack. >> agree? >> i don't agree. if you're paying attention to the policy, it has to worry you that he has bunch of stated policies in his platform, if you start unpacking them, there aren't any details and what he's saying now is totally different than what he is saying now. >> don't people normally state that. >> i don't think he flipped to a policy. i think he's basically just, he's got a thing in writing that my policy is "a." you say "a" is my policy, but it's not. >> but the problem is oba
, on this issue generally in foreign policy, how is that playing out in pennsylvania? guest: there is no doubt that the president had a pretty substantial lead on foreign policy in the polls that have been done. that lead has certainly narrowed to four, five, six points in the polls i looked at just last week. the been gauzy issue has certainly played a pretty significant role in that decline. on been gauzy, it's hard to say exactly how that would play a politically. i do think the administration has a lot to answer for objectively for how they handled it and what the president and vice-president new or did not know when any time and how they responded to the request for security. we do not have time to get in the details of that. typically that would not be decisive. we will not go to the moral question that the caller raised, but in political terms, it's not likely to be decisive, but it's certainly not helpful to the president. it is still in the polls that i have done and others have done largely about the economy. host: this was just a few days ago from politicio. republicans are intrigue
